2 of many smoke stacks at a facility on Naval Base Great Lakes, Illinois. Taken just before sunset. Hoping the angle on the left tower didn't kill my score too much.

Good use of negative space.

would have prefered a sharp clean focus rather than this grainy one, be it on purpose or not

Great idea. Too much dead space, need to be more centered.

Too much empty space on one side in my opinion.

nice composition and colors (very good light). subjects seem a bit out of focus though.

Hmmm.. an interesting composition... I think, however, this would be better without the right half. Both objects in left side make the pic unbalanced. Beautiful colours and fine feeling.
